Prosecutors need to take comprehensive measures to the heads of municipalities that do not provide fire safety

Over 8 thousand violations in the field of protection and use of forests were revealed by prosecutors over the past and first quarter of this year. They have brought to administrative responsibility almost 900 officials and legal entities, a little less - to disciplinary. Such data were cited today, at an interdepartmental meeting dedicated to the protection of the Far Eastern forests, by Deputy Prosecutor General of Russia Yuri Gulyagin.

“The analysis of the activities of the authorities shows that the measures taken do not have a decisive impact on strengthening the rule of law. Their effectiveness is insufficient, and the number of violations does not significantly decrease. Every year, prosecutors alone reveal 6 violations of forestry legislation. The number of acts of prosecutorial response introduced for their elimination exceeds 3 thousand, ”said Yury Gulyagin.

The main problem, in his opinion, is that at the regional and local levels there is still no legal regulation of relations on the use of forests and their protection. In particular, this applies to the fire season. This is not the only trouble. The Deputy Prosecutor General believes that the district has still not resolved the issue of forest management, forest reproduction, the subjects are not preparing for the fire hazard season in an untimely or incomplete manner. Violations are detected in all regions, even in those where forest fires are rare.

“Still inaction in the implementation of fire safety measures allowed local governments. In the Republic of Sakha, Khabarovsk, Primorye Territories, the Amur Region, and the Chukotka Autonomous District, they did not timely adopt municipal fire safety programs. There were no reserves of financial and material resources for emergency response. Prosecutors need to take comprehensive measures to the heads of municipalities who are not systematically ensuring the full implementation of fire safety measures, up to and including the question of early termination of powers, ”the Deputy Prosecutor General emphasized.
